Michael Copeland, two-star prospect from Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Ga., garnered an offer from MTSU last week. The linebacker from South Georgia has recently garnered the attention of the Vols. "Tennessee called me last night," said Michael Copeland. "I talked to Coach (Lance) Thompson. He said they watched my updated film. They said they liked it. He told me he'd be back down here sometime in December. They seemed pleased with my test scores, and my grades. They told me that I can be a big help to their program." "Tennessee is number one right now. FIU (offer) and Florida Atlantic (former leader) are second. Middle Tennessee (offer) is still in there. All of my other offers are in there with my leaders, too." The Peach State prospect has only positive things to say about the Tennessee program. "I get letters from Tennessee daily," he said. "They look like they're building a great program. And their stadium is ridiculous. They've invited me to a few games. If it wasn't so far away, I definitely would've been up there by now. So far, I like everything I've heard about their program." Copeland plays a big role in the success of the Lowndes defense. He helped lead them last week to a big first round victory. "I did real good against East Coweta (High School)," he commented. "I got another sack. I finished up with five solo tackles. I had a few assists, too. We won 52-14." Lowndes will face another South Georgia team this weekend. This program has had almost as much success as Lowndes in the last decade. Copeland has an idea of what it will take to win this highly anticipated matchup. "We travel to Camden County (9-2) this weekend," he said. "They've got a nice defense. It'll be a defensive battle. Whoever scores first will get the momentum. I think this game will come down to whoever turns the ball over the least amount."
